Under this MoU, the institutes are collaborating in Antarctica on Atmospheric Research wherein a Movable Atmospheric Radar for Antarctica is currently in operation at Maitri station. The Movable Atmospheric Radar (MARA) data is being analyzed to study the atmospheric boundary layer processes over Maitri station, Antarctica. MARA data has been proven to be important and extensively used to validate the newly launched European Space Agency satellite, Aeolus.
